Hello world, my name is Lisa Benninger, and I’m the author of this parenting blog.  Here on Prag Meta, I aim to help make life a little bit easier for some first time parents.  Having been a stay at home mom for 20 years now, I know a thing or two about parenting.  My oldest son just turned 20 and is getting ready to go back to NYU for his second year of college.  My youngest is 16 and is getting ready to take the SATs.  He’s already planning to follow in his brother’s footsteps by attending NYU when he graduates high school.  Whether it’s baby proofing the house or apartment to helping with college applications, I know being a parent isn’t easy.  It’s a full time job, and as such requires a lot of time and energy.

When I first became a parent over 20 years ago, I thought I was ready for anything.  While I was pregnant, I read so many parenting books and articles to help me get ready for this new chapter in my life.  I quickly learned however that the old saying “experience is the best teacher” is most certainly true.  Even after all my preparation and reading, I only truly felt confident in my parenting abilities once my second son was born.  At this point I had a little over 4 years of experience being a parent.  And while I definitely wasn’t an expert by any means, this 4 years of experience gave me the confidence I needed to succeed.
